Your Value in Gods’ eyes
The definition for value is the quality ( positive or negative) that renders something desirable and valuable or the degree of importance that you put on something.
Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows (God values you highly)
Luke 16:15 He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.
1 Timothy 1:8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. (eternal value)
Proverbs 16:13 Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value a man who speaks the truth. ( moral values)
Where do you think the world gets their standard for value?
The world’s value is very different from Gods value.
Society allows models, sports figures, celebrities and movie stars be our role models and we unfortunately set our self worth or value by these standards instead of the word of God.
Unfortunatly the image that the world presents to you is not real and it does not really exist. It is fake and merely an image.
What makes something valuable or of worth?
Does it have a purpose and is it useful?
What condition is it in? excellent, good, damaged, aged?
Is it an original or unique?
Is it real?
Is it endorsed by someone of status?
Is it in high demand- Does everyone want it?
The value you put on yourself comes from your own self worth- or your acceptance of yourself the way God made you. If you have low self esteem then you will struggle with knowing your true value.
Take inventory- Do you feel worthy? Do you esteem yourself as valuable?
The more you believe the truth about what God says about you the more you accept yourself for who you are and who God made you to be. You are of great value to your Creator.
You are Blessed– Deuteronomy 28:1-14
Strong in the Lord– Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made– Psalm 139:14
I have called you by name– You are mine Isaiah 43:1
God says to you today that you are valuable to Him because He made you and you are special, one of a kind, unique, created with purpose for His plans.
